Font with a special "A"?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

can someone help me remember that sans serif font with an "A" inclined. One side is vertical. The kind of type that is used in the British band's logo The Verve.
I thought it would be AvantGarde or Univers but I can not find that "A" or else I do not have complete font families. Thank you for your help.

From the Wikipedia article about ITC Avant Garde:

Stylistic Alternates sample:

Memory is a funny thing ,-)

Thank you Alfred. AvantGarde it is!

Do you own the font? That feature is under the stylistic alternates. I think I do not own it. Must buy.

Regards.

No, I don’t. I have to confess that I ‘borrowed’ a sample image from MyFonts.com! :$

No problem.

The goal was to identify the font.

Very 70s ,-) Reminds me of Kubrick too (memory is playing again).

Kubrick used Futura, but since Avant Gard is also a Geometric Sans Serif, that owes a lot to Futura, I see how you can mix them.

By the way, I own it and it works well:

Thanks Mithferion.

Where did you bought your Avant Garde and which package to include the Stylistic Alternates?

I bought it on MyFonts, there was an offer a year ago or so, and went for it.

The family has two widths: Regular and Condensed, and in the Regular width you'll find the Standard and the Pro edition. Both of the Regular width Packs have the Stylistic Alternates and both cost the same, so you can take a look here in the Pro Pack and try all of the features it has.

Sorry, I linked to the Std Pack. It has been corrected.

Best regards!
